California Governor gave up the game and launched an embarrassing attack on GOP Rep Majorie Taylor Greene for saying she felt threatened by Dem Rep Jamaal Bowman.
Greene (R-GA) said she felt “threatened” during an exchange with Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) outside of the Capitol yesterday. Greene said:
“What concerns me about Jamaal Bowman is he has a history of aggression. Not just towards others, but towards me in particular, and I’m very concerned about it.”
Greene ripped Bowman for calling her a “white supremacist.” She said:
“I take great offense to that.
“That’s like calling a person of color the N-word, which should never happen.
“Calling me a white supremacist is equal to that, and that is wrong.
“I think there’s a lot of concern about Jamaal Bowman, and I am concerned about it.” She continued. “I feel threatened by him. He’s someone people should watch.”
Enter Gavin Newsom who said:
“His physical mannerisms are aggressive. I feel threatened by him.”-Marjorie Taylor Greene describing Rep. Bowman.
“This is the kind of dangerous rhetoric that led to Emmett Till’s death.
“Everyone should call this out for what it is: blatant racism.”
